Our last and final blog in the Shop Your Body Type series, is for the diamond body shape. Diamond shaped body types are very common in females with a large bust, wide hips, and a round waist. As a diamond body shape, your hips are broader than you bust and shoulders and you have a full midsection. There are certain techniques you can use to accentuate your assets when you have this body type. For example, you should look for swimsuit tops that will create a waist and accentuate your bust and shoulders. You should also find bottoms that lengthen your lower half.


The key to dressing a diamond body shape is to balance your shoulders and bust with your hips while creating a waist. So having a scoop neckline or a wide v neckline will accentuate your shoulders more. Choose clothing that adds curves and fullness to your upper body with appropriate clothing cuts while choosing pants and skirts that will lean and lengthen your lower body. You have amazing lower legs and beautiful arms, so feel free to show them off.
